Peura, Pilvi I.; Viholainen, Helena J. K.; Aro, Tuija I.; Räikkönen, Eija M.; Usher, Ellen L.; Sorvo, Riikka M. A.; Klassen, Robert M.; Aro, Mikko T. – Journal of Experimental Education, 2019
We investigated the specificity of reading self-efficacy among second- to fifth-grade children in Finland (N = 1,327).

Efficacy beliefs targeting reading-related activities were…
